              It's no secret that authors have a love-hate relationship with Hollywood. The oft-repeated cliche that the book was better than the movie holds true for more reasons than the average reader will ever know. When asked about selling their book rights to Hollywood authors like to jo...ke that they drive their manuscripts to the border of Arizona and California and toss them over the fence, driving back the way they came at breakneck speed. This is probably because Hollywood just doesn't get it. Its vision for the film or TV series rarely seems to match the vision of the author. And for those rare individuals who've had the fortune of sitting across the desk from one of the myriad, interchangeable development execs praising the brilliance of their work while ticking off a never-ending list of notes for the rewrite, the pros of pitching their work to Hollywood rarely outweigh the cons. Stephen Jay Schwartz has sat on both sides of that desk-first as the Director of Development for film director Wolfgang Petersen, then as a screenwriter and author pitching his work to the film and television industry. He's seen all sides of what is known in this small community as Development Hell. The process is both amusing and heartbreaking. Most authors whose work contains a modicum of commercial potential eventually find themselves in the room taking a shot at seeing their creations re-visualized by agents, producers or development executives. What they often discover is that their audience is younger and less worldly as themselves. What passes for story notes is often a mishmash of vaguely connected ideas intended to put the producer's personal stamp on the project. Hollywood vs. The Author is a collection of non-fiction anecdotes by authors who've had the pleasure of experiencing the development room firsthand-some who have successfully managed to straddle the two worlds, seeing their works morph into the kinds of feature films and TV shows that make them proud, and others who stepped
